'll ask about the faa graham says he disagrees with the obama administration's decision not to prosecute the suspect as an enemy combat it. >> i understand we will have a moment of silence for the victims in boston. that is appropriate, and the president is right to lead that effort. quickly, to the families who have lost loved ones, to those breaks as a nation. to the people of boston, you make us proud by the courage you have shown. to the law enforcement officials and intelligence community, god bless you for your hard work and your bravery. iat brings me here today is have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as an enemy combatant. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out the combatant status for the suspect at this time. i believe such a decision is premature. it is impossible for us to gather the evidence in just a few days to determine whether or not this individual should be held for questioning under the law of war. the decision by the administration to try this individual in federal
republicans are calling on the obama administration to declare the 19-year-old suspect an enemy combatant subject to the loss of four, so intelligence officials can continue to interrogate him for as long as they deem necessary. authorities captured him in watertown, mass. friday evening. they are invoking the public .afety exception he remains hospitalized under sedation and remains unclear what kind of communication they are able to have him at the moment. judy is on the phone from north carolina, independent line. good morning, and welcome to the program. caller: thank you. my thought on the issue is that we are a large nation, an all- inclusive nation, and i believe that the boy scouts is a private organization and has the right to determine who their membership is. i believe there should be a third organization that some of the gay-rights people should put into place, and that would be the rainbow scouts. then they can put all the lbb tea in anything they wanted, -- lgbt. republican senator tim scott delivering the republican response and focusing on the events of the past week, incl
and should not have miranda rights. it seems the obama administration is going to be straddling the middle ground, as they did with the so-called underwear bomber from a few years ago. host: "national journal" reporting the headline, "pete williams' reporting philosophy d y was g boon sighttory r guest: i would have to say that pete williams is the best i have ever come across, so measured and sofer. is amazing he was able to be showcased the way he was. this was a complicated story. a lot of journalists for getting the facts wrong as it was developing in real time, but pete williams was a constant force who was right 100% of the way. it is a model to all of us, people who were starting to this profession. host: the essence of the story is not jumping ahead of the story. on monday, some news organizations saying that dozens of people were killed. that was not the case, three weled.re kil the on-line sleuths pinpointed the wrong individuals before the fbi released those two photographs. guest: it is always important to realize and people get carried away in the heat of the moment, we have
't let that happen and then republicans were saying what is the obama administration doing? they're doing exactly what the republicans voted for! they're doing exactly what the sequester requires. so you know, they can't have it both ways. they can't do these dumb ass across-the-board cuts without having any impact. and we're seeing the impact. we're seeing the impact in programs particularly that hurt the poor, we're seeing the impact in head start. we're seeing the impact in food stamps. we're seeing the impact on meals on wheels, all across the board. emergency room services. now we're seeing the impact on -- we've seen the impact in the military where training has been delayed or training has been just put aside. all kinds of things. ship battleships. and we've seep the delay now with air traffic just regular passengers, trying to get from one place to the other. delays cancellations and some smaller airports, the airports actually shut down because they had to close down the tower. one way out of this. you tell me what you think about this. particularly like to hear if you were caugh
brings me here today is i have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as an enemy combatants. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to roll out and in the combat the status for the suspect at this time. i believe such a decision is premature. it is impossible for us to gather the evidence in just a few days to determine whether or not this individual should be held for questioning under the law of war. the decision by the administration to try this individual in federal court is a sound decision. it is the right decision. military commission trials are not available in cases like this. i wrote the 2009 military commission act. i have been the judge advocate for over 30 years, along with the help of many colleagues. we created a system for foreign terrorists. we purposely excluded american citizens. i have all the confidence in the world in article 3 courts at the federal level. they do a terrific job. i have confidence in our military commissions system. the decision by the administration not to proce
. the white house and the obama administration says that the border is more secure than it's been in 40 years. and spending more money on border security is not really necessary. their follow-on point would be that by creating legalization programs and also by creating a way for people to come legally into the u.s. to work, that you take some of the pressure off the border. and, you know, that said, there's been frustration among people who have seen these efforts go before without really trying to clamp down on the border and create a legalization program. >> ifill: brian, what also feels different this time is we have gotten used to seeing rallies like what we saw on capitol hill today with the same usual suspects saying it's time for immigration reform but it feels like this time like other people are on that bandwagon including members of the larger faith community. >> the political environment is a lot different than in 2007 the last time congress took up an effort to overhaul the nation's immigration laws. right now we have evangelical leaders who have signed on and said, look, there's
forces? we are giving them, most recently, the obama' administration they would give them 120 $3 million. the opposition clearly that they wanted far more than that. yet we are giving them armor and stuff like that. how can we defeat them when we are supplying them? at the same time, we have some issues like benghazi and the helicopter that had the hard crash landing in south korea this week and nobody has covered that at all. west, texas connected to the bombing in boston? and how much fertilizer was taken away before the explosion occurred? is anybody have any control over that? you may come i just don't see how we can defeat al qaeda and terrorism, homegrown or foreign- born, if we continue to put with free welfare without giving them any drug test or saying you have 30 days to 90 days to get off of welfare and get a job. we just need to bring back our moral values and ethics and start holding our politicians to to make them stand up there and do what they said they do, and not get away with fast and furious. host of issues,, some directly related and some not. yes: it is not uncommon
to determine the exact cause of the fire. the obama administration is trying to figure out what if anything it can now do about gun control. the senate gutted legislation that would have approved background checks. four democrats joined republicans in blocking the bill, afterwards an infuriated president obama spoke and described it as a shameful day in washington. in boston today the fbi is considering a possible photo and video release of a person they believe is connected to the marathon bombings on monday. the video was taken by surveillance camera near a lord & taylor store. investigators are debating the benefits and drawbacks of releasing materials to the public. the death toll stands at three dead more than 150 injured. ten remain in critical condition, and media critics are hammering several news organization who wrongly reported that a suspect had been arrested. cnn in addition to the erroneous report that somebody had been arrested also got the man's skin color wrong. no explanation from cnn. stephanie? >> stephanie: david -- >> actually am i supposed to pit
is the obama administration made a big mistake, don't pur see this. >> that's past history. we are not going to hold these people responsible. >> they should have. all right. speaking of the president, what's he up to today? hey, we will tell you when we come back. >> this is the full court press. "the bill press show," live on your radio and on current tv. [ music ] >> this is the bull press show. >> at the top of the next hour we will be talking to congressman michael quapano, head of the massachusetts congressional delegation. he represents the city of boston, and he will give us the latest on the investigation into that bombing at the boston mayorthon t meanwhile, peter, a little breaking news on that front. >> cnn has reported that they have found the lid to the pressure cooker. we know that this was a pressure cooker bomb on the roof of one of the buildings surrounding the marathon finish line. they are saying this is really a big deal. they already found parts of what looked like the bottom of it, charred and a mess but the lid on these things essentially ju
pelosi. and how much was passed and what was done. >> bill: in that first -- obama administration. do you see -- maybe a better chance because of the political political -- let's see realities facing the republican party? a better chance on immigration? >> well, i do think there is a better chance on immigration. i think at one point they have to decide which one are they going to do. i think when the republicans woke up the day after the election and realized latinos voted, i think that they -- >> bill: hello! did they ever! >> i think they had to come to grips with that reality. and so i think there is a better chance on immigration. we'll just have to wait and see. i sit on judiciary. i sat through, as a matter of fact, our first hearing was about immigration and it went on all day long. and what was very clear that day was that they could handle immigration reform up to citizenship. we will make you legal residents but we just can't go that far. i think donald trump was the one who told the truth. he went to the cpac conference. what did he say? he said 11 million democrats. [ laughte
theory that the obama administration is deporting a saudi national who is behind the bombings. it is the wild wild west. we were saying -- somebody made a good point in the paper yesterday, that it makes you almost wish for the days of the 6:00 pm news where you had to wait, but at least it was reasonably accurate and responsible. >> yeah, and the "new york post" and fox news have gone the way of making it up as they go along. cnn has fallen in this trap of so interested in beating everybody else by a couple of seconds that they will put something on the air that they haven't confirmed. and then they will say this may be speculation, but let me tell you. just report what you are seeing. especially like right now. you have reporters on the scene, who are 2 or 300 yards away. what are you hearing from them. >> stephanie: david we're going to let you go to you have can get it right at the top of the hour. >> all right. thank, stephanie. >> stephanie: all right. honey. >> we can confirm that the attack was caused by martians i'm sorry, i am told that is not tr
these agencies, not the united states congress. under the obama administration, immigration agents can no longer arrest those who violate u.s. immigration law. immigration agents cannot arrest an individual for entering the u.s. illegally. we cannot arrest someone who over stays a visa. immigration agents are prohibited from enforcing laws regarding fraudulent documents and a dandy that by illegal aliens. agents are forced to apply the dream act, not to children in schools, but to adult inmates in jails. mmiething criminals back in nation, criminals who have insulted our officers, and who prey on children. at the same time, i.c.e. officers are punished and threatened by dhs and i.c.e. leadership, threatened with the loss of their jobs simply because they attempt to enforce the nation's immigration laws and provide for public safety. chosen togang 8 has ignore law enforcement officers, have a question i would like to ask them publicly. schumer, dickhuck durbin, john mccain, patrick leahy, lindsey graham, roark menendez, jeff blake, michael bennett's cut as united states senators, the representati
released a letter, nine-page letter to president obama asking the administration to reveal its legal basis for targeting killing and called for an end to the secrecy surrounding the use of drones. what's the purpose of the letter? >> this is the first time that all of the human rights groups in the united states including some that operate internationally as well all signed on to the same letter telling president obama that in our view, this is an illegal program. that this is a program that needs to end the way it's been operated. and that we also need to know a lot more about the program. >> bill: didn't the president say when john brennan's confirmation up and you were in, we talked about this before, that they were going to come forward with their guidelines and their policy and so we would all know when they used drones and who makes the decisions? >> well, they -- at that time, because to try to get john brennan confirmed to be c.i.a. director they let a few more pieces of the information about the drone program out. particularly to members of the senate intelligence committee. but o
the metrics that this and the future administration will use to make sure that the border is truly secure. congress passed a law in 2007 requiring that the 100% of the e 0%operationally controlled." president obama and secretary napolitano abandoned that metric. the bill before us weakens that law by only requiring the southern border to be 90% effectively secured. in some sectors. only the so-lled high risk sectors. what about the other six? before green cards are allocated to those here illegally, the secretary only has to certify that the security plans and fencing's are "substantially deployed, operational, and completed." if the secretary does not do her job and a commission is created to provide recommendations, this is just a loophole that allows the secretary to neglect doing the job. another area of interest for me is employment verification measures. as i said before so many times, i was here in 1986 when we for the first time made it illegal for employers to hire undocumented individuals. i have been a champion for the e-verify system a staple in every workplace. it is an impor
, the bill does nothing to improve the metrics that this and the future administration will use to ensure that that the border is truly secure. congress passed a law in 2007 requiring that the 100% or the border be 100% quote-unquote operationally controlled. however, president obama and secretary napolitano abandoned that metrix. the bill before is weakenes current law by only requiring the southern border to be 90% effectively secured. in some sector, only the so-called high risk sectors. what about the other six sectors? then before green card are allocated to those here illegally, the secretary only has to certify that the security plans and fencings are quote-unquote substantially deployed. operational. and completed. if the secretary doesn't do her job, then a commission is created to provide recommendations. this is just a loophole that allows the secretary to neglect doing the job. another area of interest for me is the employment verification measure. as i said before so many times, i was here in 1986 when we for the first time made it illegal for employers to hire undocumented i
very much. something not too bad year. you are looking at administration that has two former prime ministers and three former party presidents. you must be envious because you cannot do anything like that in your present system. clinton as the vice- presidentf obama. ll start off by touching my view is something is wrong when you say the u.s. is end andn the giving japan is always on the receiving end. must stand tall as an equal and responsible allied to the u.s. hard as ase must walk guardian of international goods, peace, prosperity, and democracy. thatas my grandfather's aspiration. -- japan'scurity security treaty, 1951 in san day,isco he wrote that one japan would work with the u.s. to maintainpartner the national order. 62 years later, that still holds. -- itmy belief hobbs that is my belief that japan has a noble responsibility to bring happiness and democracy in the world. that is why, ladies and gentlemen, japan must regain its economic power. that is why we are working hard to turn around our economy. make no mistake, we are pushing it not only for the sake of economic g
